I was Ranked 10th in the nation as a college wrestler, trained in judo, and a little bit in Aikido and Karate. Grew up in the city and involved with some shady characters, so had my share of street fights. Luckily i've gotten out of that. Ive kept busy training both kids and adults in wrestling, and for awhile an Aikido instructor had me training a hand full of students in his Dojo in my version of MMA. Now I just train, work, watch MMA and think that if I had competed 5-10 years ago when I should have started I could have beat 3 quarters of the guys right now. I'm 35 now so although in shape, 35 is too old to get involved plus I have a career that pays well.
